Dental Crowns in One Day with CEREC
With the ability to completely restore a tooth’s health, strength, and appearance, a dental crown can be the optimal solution for a variety of dental health concerns. At our office, we can offer many patients that same high quality of restoration in just a single visit, without having to schedule a follow-up to have your crown placed. With advanced CEREC (chairside economic restoration of esthetic ceramics), we can utilize 3D CAD/CAM technology to digitally design and craft your custom-made dental crown in just one day. Patients who qualify for CEREC same-day crowns can enjoy their fully restored and improved smiles faster and more conveniently, without having to wear a temporary restoration and schedule multiple visits.
When to Schedule an Appointment
Many patients who qualify for a dental crown also qualify for a CEREC same-day crown. For instance, if your tooth is fractured or broken and you require emergency treatment, then a same-day crown can restore your tooth and prevent further damage more quickly. If you receive root canal therapy or an especially large filling, then a CEREC crown can help your tooth recover its strength the same day. In some cases of tooth loss, a CEREC crown may also be coupled with a dental implant post, significantly simplifying your tooth replacement procedure.
To ensure that your tooth is a good candidate to receive a same-day crown, your dentist will first perform a comprehensive examination of the tooth and its surrounding oral tissues. If untreated tooth decay or gum disease is present, then you may require treatment to address the condition before your crown can be placed.
